Gorgon Project


Project Overview

The Chevron-operated Gorgon Project is one of the world’s largest natural gas projects. The project has an upstream and downstream component that facilitate the development of approximately 37 trillion cubic feet of gas from the Greater Gorgon Area gas fields, 130km off the north-west coast of Western Australia. 

It includes the construction of a 15 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plant on Barrow Island and a domestic gas plant with the capacity to provide 300 terajoules per day to supply gas to Western Australia. 

The project will be off loaded via a 4.2km long loading jetty for transport to international markets. The domestic gas will be piped to the Western Australia mainland. 

The Gorgon Project is operated by an Australian subsidiary of Chevron and is a joint venture of the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (47.3%), ExxonMobil (25%) and Shell (25%), Osaka Gas (1.25%), Tokyo Gas (1%) and Chubu Electric Power (0.417%).
